    Yep, supporting artists and not parasitic corporations is always preferable. Unfortunately, said parasitic conglomerates try to get their greedy piggy tendrils into everything they can

      Yeah, it’s really hard and often impossible to support the artists that you want.

      A good movie, but most of the people involved made fixed wages (no sales) whilst 90+% of the protis goes to the studio and the lead actor and director (+ credited people that never even saw the project, but you know, money favours)?
      Yeah, your money vote does not go to what you want to support/sponsor.

      A publisher is selling a game that it got by buying a studio & getting rid of the devs? What’s their added value? That’s just capital yields, like landlording.
